Birdbath - pattern by Judith Maslen (Freebie)
The border is done on a FINE PCA grid. It is a beautiful design and should have been easy but I wasn't really up to par yesterday and shouldn't really have tackled it. But I did and the first attempt was rubbish - and so was the second and then the third. By this time determination had set in and I finally gave up last night at the 8th attempt. A good nights sleep and feeling much better the 9th attempt was a triumph. I was a bit heavy handed with some of the whitework on the column and the parchment is a little crinkled but I have finished it.
I like the end result though and somehow it looks a little like Wedgwood.
